There’s a lot to think about regarding training. Employees may have requirements to meet for certification and you may want them to get some training or education to keep up with current trends and information. Maybe you’ll send them to conferences, or maybe you can offer some internal training. You may even want to have your own learning and development team.

In this episode, we answer fourteen of our listeners’ questions about training. First, we share advice for training employees without sounding condescending. Then, we discuss implementing women’s leadership workshops. Training managers to give effective performance reviews is a real need; our hosts discuss why it’s crucial and how to do it.

Susan has done a lot of succession planning and creating training plans for potential candidates, and she shares her secrets.
